An Open Letter to the A&E Television Network

Dear A&E Television Network:

We were appalled to hear about your upcoming “reality” television series entitled “8 Minutes,” in which police-officer-turned-minister, Kevin Brown, deploys deceptive tactics to lure sex workers into a hotel room and then tries to convince them to leave their profession.

The concept and implementation of the show are troubling for a number of reasons. First, its deception treats these women as if they are not full human beings, worthy of respect and the right to make their own fully-informed decisions. You cannot have secured their consent to be filmed prior to luring them into the rooms, and this poses several ethical and legal concerns, while treating them like meat for mass consumption by TV audiences.

Second, you are literally putting their lives in danger. If they are being trafficked, this entire situation places them in danger of violence and abuse from those who are trafficking them. Not only that, but you are engaging them in an unwanted situation, and therefore your show is abusive in its own way. You are coercing these women into a situation they did not ask for, which is a form of trafficking for the purpose of television entertainment. Shame on you.

It is a reality show. Nothing about it is real. If it was actually real, they wouldn’t get enough signed releases to have a show.

They did get signed releases. To back up getting no one to “talk” – they got them arrested on prostitution charges. Then one woman they even threatened to deport her if she spoke after they got her arrested. The media wasn’t revealing the story because they were told that this woman would be deported and lose her kids if they did. They got Kathryn Griffin who runs a program in Texas to lie for the promise of giving her “credit” on the show – and then screwed her over after she sold out the women who should have been consulting… Read more »

Correction – they took down my facebook page just now. I’ll see what I can do to post it on my blog page. You can email me if you want a copy in the meantime.

PS – Cupcake Girls – putting up comments on a porn blog accomplishes nothing. I’ve been after the District Attorney’s office to shut down the show. Letters? They laugh about posts like this over coffee. I however have been fighting them a lot longer than you and know how to go up against them and WIN. I offered to meet with you to discuss this before the show aired – and you refused to meet with me. So save looking like you give a shit now once the camera is on you. When it was the time I was fighting… Read more »

Be careful of the men in black SUVs driving past your house real slow.

Don’t laugh – we past that stage long ago. Now they’re doing things like leaving gas cans on the front porches of our members, or even going right into their cars and homes and removing all SWA literature and flyers. This is not just “me” that’s experiencing these things – but many of us. Most of whom are trying to keep their past in sex work private – so they don’t want to speak about this openly. So they ask me to speak up for them. Mostly the minute anyone identifies as a member of SWA or speaks anything positive… Read more »

And this is why I realized people who retire from the industry have to get a different support group. Because the men can’t handle a woman who speaks her mind – instead of saying what he wants to hear to get his cash. The women all feel so hostile and insecure all they do is push away everyone who isn’t actively working. Leaving someone who has chosen to leave the industry because of assholes like this – needing to find other social networks. And here I thought you were mature enough to have an intelligent conversation with that didn’t revolve… Read more »

Hopefully they don’t force you to write a suicide note in your mom’s shed, before they hang you, like they did for the whore wrangler who had Cheney and 1/2 of DC on her client list.

If you are ever contacted by some petite, barely legal hookers in the NJ area, please forward their pix, rates, menu items available and contact info to me. Black and Anal should be prioritized.

TY

Jody outting herself as a white broad who was ignored by many potential johns because she wouldn’t go for the “trip to the isles” upsell money.

Also, there is a high likelihood of “petite” being a trigger word.

I was making too much money at home to want to go to some “isle”. I had over $250,000 in cash when I was arrested in 1984 – not bad for a 24 year old before the internet was born. Actually I was quite petite as I was an anorexic/bulimic at the time – just like the majority of sex workers also have eating disorders when they’re in the sex trade because latent queers like yourself tend to only like women who look like boys with plastic tits because they can’t get it up with real women. Real woman who… Read more »

Well if you were bulimic and eroded away your gag reflex, I can understand how you earned a lot w/o renting out the fart hole.

I am not a fan of bolt on tits. Lil tits are fine for me. 1) they usually come with a fine ass 2) there aint no hole in a titty to put my dick.
